Turn semitransparent PNG image into a white silhouette, preserving transparency
I have an PNG image like this with a transparent background:
How can I change the image color to white, and keep the transparent background in GIMP?
The desired result is a white silhouette on a transparent background.
There are several quick ways to reduce an image to transparent white tones. From the Colors menu select one of these
- Threshold...: slide black (left side) to
- Colorize...: slide Lightness to
- Curves...: slide black (left) to the top (white).
- Bucket Fill White: Fill mode Lighten Only or Addition.
Any of these procedures will lead to the following transparent white image:
Note that due to the transparency a colored background will shine through your image.
